Review

PRAISE FOR LINUS "Magoon's digital artwork uses scanned paper textures manipulated in Photoshop, with color used masterfully--the result emphasizes the different looks achieved by using the various art supplies. The simple but expressive faces on the implements are standouts. Magoon gets his message across: Be the best you you can be." (Picture book. 4-8) --Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR LINUS "The narrative is packed with art-related puns ("bristling with envy"; "brush aside"; "drawn to the very edge"; "Go, get that lead out"), and the digitally created illustrations are filled with movement and color. The idea of the two ends of the same pencil learning to get along will appeal to children as they watch what the pair are able to create together with a bit of cooperation." --Maryann Owen, Booklist
--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
